Meanwhile, Renault, which had a disastrous Austrian Grand Prix, appears to be throwing caution to the wind as it takes a full complement of the red-banded rubber.
While the hard, albeit the C2 was the go-to tyre in Austria, at Silverstone the majority of teams have opted to take just one set of the C1s next week, though Daniel Ricciardo, Robert Kubica and the Racing Point duo have opted for two.
Last year's race was won by Sebastian Vettel, who stopped twice. Starting the race on softs, he subsequently changed to mediums before another final stint on softs.
Indeed, five of the top ten finishers were on exactly the same strategy, while second-placed Lewis Hamilton ran a one-stop strategy, as did his teammate, both starting on softs and then switching to mediums.
The Renault pair were the only drivers to use the hards, both taking them on at their first pit stop.
